people i should say, multiple people have been shot at a harris county college. i've got fbi profiler clint van zant standing by. clint, this is the second time that we have been on air since newtown where literally we have had breaking news during a conversation on gun legislation. i was just talking to congressman chris van hollen and we break in with news regarding this shooting and waiting to get information in texas and it was, i believe, just last week or maybe two weeks ago, again, in the middle of a conversation on gun legislation and there was a shooting in california. right now, we don't know much about what's happening here. when's happened i should say here but police are saying, clint, multiple people have been shot. >> yeah. you know, what i'm afraid we're seeing is there are a number of people who because of pending gun legislation for one thing are buying guns. i was at a local sporting goods store where i live in virginia, and people were stacked up two deep at a gun counter buying guns and the ammunition had almost been cleaned -- this is a large store. and the ammun
kept the f.b.i. team waiting for more than five weeks -- five weeks when they were finally granted access. four months later, the administration still has not discussed the serious between the groups behind the benghazi attack and the leaders of the attack on the u.s. embassies in cairo, tunis the same week of september 11. four months later, following the pickering report on state department failures leading up to the attack, not a single state department employee has been fired and held responsible for their role in denying adequate security for the consulate in benghazi. four months later, despite secretary clinton's september 21 declaration, quote, which said, what happened was a terrorist attack, we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans, end of quote. this administration seems to have not only rested but to have moved on, and apparently hopes that the congress and the american people will too. and today, just today, "the new york times" is reporting, quote, several ejips members of a squad of militant that --
on afterwards but the -- once the investigation started the fbi spoke to them before we spoke to them. other than other people in tripoli, which i think you're talking about washington, right? >> the point i'm making a very simple phone call to the individuals would have ascertained immediately that there was no protest prior to this. this attack started at 9:40 p.m. benghazi time and it was an assault. i appreciate the fact you called it an assault. but i'm going back to then ambassador rice five days later going sunday shows what i would say purpose fully misleading the public. i appreciate the fact of the transparency of this hearing. why weren't we transparent to that point in time? >> first of all, senator, i would say that once the assault happened and once we got our people rescued and out, our immediate most concern was number one taking care of their injuries. as i said, i still have a ds agent at walter reed seriously injured. getting them into frankfurt to get taken care of. the fbi going over immediately to start talking to them. we did not think it was appropriate for us to talk
, to do that time honored trick of saying well, there is still the f.b.i. looking in to this. as long as an inquiry is out there, i can't answer x, y, z. perfect out and the way of appointing the inquiries and commissions is always a way to cover. >> bret: by the way, juan, the a.r.v., the report that looked in to it, with ambassador pickerring and former chairman of the joint chiefs mullen did not interview secretary clinton for this massive report that was supposed to look in to every aspect of this case. they did not interview secretary clinton which seemed strange to many of the lawmakers today. let me ask you about this hearing overall and what you thought. your perspective. >> first, let me respond to your point which is that she said it was their decision, that they did not see her as in the line of order. >> bret: i know but don't you think that's weird? >> no. she is the secretary of state. if she said during the testimony the request for added security never came to her desk. she didn't accept it or deny it, she didn't review it. didn't come to her desk. >> she took responsi
. there are other suspects that the fbi or both closely following and consulting with partner governments. i think based on my last conversation with the director that was just a few days ago he went to libya and tunisia and believes the investigation is proceeding. they are doing was a fight briefings with certain committees. i don't know about this committee, but i certainly hope that the fbi is able to investigate and identify and hold responsible lowest wage this attack against us and i think that based on their work they feel that they are pursuing some very positive leads. >> my understanding is the person that was held was released by a judge. that person has been released. so you don't know at this point who did it. >> i confirmed with the director who was in the meeting with their high officials that this person is basically under law enforcement surveillance forbidden to leave. the director told me that had been confirmed by him. >> just very briefly, no one has been held accountable or charged with this offense. before gadhafi was taken out, my understanding is the nation had 18 shipmen
with the prime minister, among others. fbi agents have had a difficult time working on site in benghazi to analyze the crime scene because of security concerns. the fbi is tapping into facebook like this. people can fill out a form on the fbi's website. meanwhile, libyan officials say they are frustrated because they don't control the area where the attack happened. militants do. and those militants are sympathetic with al qaeda. local leaders are not cooperating. withins are also said to be afraid to talk and key police officers terrified of revenge attacks. >> so zain, has u.s. diplomacy overall changed since the benghazi attack? >> you know, it really has, carol. i was speaking to experts who say the security arm at the state department, known as diplomatic security, has always tried to balance diplomacy on one hand and security on the other. to the extent to which, how can you let officials go out and meet people? since benghazi, there's a lot less people-to-people contact and much more emphasis on security. the other thing, too, analysts say before 9/11, the diplomacy was focused o
that there is an fbi investigation going on, because i personally called the fbi director and i was told that they are making progress and that some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> we work on an ongoing basis so we can get behind and find out what happened and move beyond that. can you make that commitment to me? >> senator, in all fairness we do know what happened is very clear. were you at the briefings with the tapes? >> there was a briefing in the tapes that we all saw those of us that went through which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel folks who described precisely what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold and we had a very complete and detailed description. >> we know what happened in benghazi because we have the reports. we don't know why we were misled. i'm just looking to make sure that your secretary -- swedes find out what the administration who knew and the american public. >> i don't want the people to be left with this impression when you say why we were misled, that implies an intent to
to the bottom of that? >> for the moment, i know that there is an fbi investigation going on because i personally called the fbi director and was debriefed by him and told that they're making progress, and that some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> i am going based on so we can get that behind us. but we can move beyond that. can you make that commitment to me? >> in all fairness, i do think we know what happened. it is very clear. were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> there was a briefing with tapes which we all saw which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with or intel folks, who described to us precisely what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold. we had a very complete and detailed description. >> we would happen now because we have the reports. what we do not know is why we were misled. i am just looking to make sure that you will work with me so that we find of what the administration knew. -- out what the administration knew. >> when you say why we were misled, that implies an intent to actually mi
dennboldened be one has paid a penalty for the attacks in benghazi? >> i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume some members of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume. about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that a
on 9/14 three days after the attack told the fbi there was no demonstration, this undercut the administration's false narrative that there was an anti-islam video to blame and this came two days before susan rice's statements on the sunday talk shows, also today, a leading republican said, given mrs. clinton's performance, having not reviewed these requests and these warnings that he would have fired her. here is rand paul. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility, i think that ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time, and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, did you not read the cables from ambassador stephens, i would have relieved you of your post. >> one thing to listen for at house foreign affairs, megyn, is the parsing of the language, what we heard from mrs. clinton al-qaeda core may be decimated, the traditional al-qaeda leadership with bin laden's death, but in fact, concedes that the taste or flavor of al-qaeda, al-qaeda 2.0 what we'
's no reason down the road, i would assume but for the moment i know that there is an f.b.i. investigation going on because i personally called the f.b.i. director and was debriefed by him and told they're making progress and some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> will you work with me, then, i'm going, to get that behind us and find out what actually happened and move beyond that, can you make that commitment to me? >> i think, senator, in all fareness, i think we do know what happened. i think that it is very clear, were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> well, there was a briefing with tapes which we all saw, those of us who went to it. which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel folks who described to us precisely what we were seeing. we saw the events unfold. we had a very complete and detailed description. >> yes, we know what happened in benghazi now because we have reports. what we don't know is why we were misled. i'm just looking to make sure that you as secretary will work with me so we find out wha
about it. i'll tell you this, if so, it's going to be short lived, because i know from talking to the f.b.i. director that they are pursuing that diligently. he was personally just in libya. meeting on this and those efforts are going to continue. and i know that this president -- you know, he doesn't bluff about these kinds of things. he has said they are going to pay a price and said he would go into pakistan if we had evidence to operate on and i'm confident when and if we are prepared, we will execute with respect to finding justice for what happened in benghazi. >> the keystone xl pipeline and senator boxer said, it wouldn't belong before it crossed your desk. a bipartisan group of senators signed on to a letter to president obama requesting that he approve the construction of the pipeline. we are asking that the review process be completed by the end of march and i hope you will be able to comply with that. >> i will try. i need to check in with the legal department and make sure -- i don't want to make a promise that i'm unaware of what can be fulfilled. i can tell you this. it's hap
assume. but for the moment i know there is an fbi investigation going on because i personally called the fbi director and was told they are making progress and that some things may or may not be right to take place. >> so we can get that behind us and find out what actually happened, that we can move on beyond that, can you make that commitment to me? >> in all fairness, i think we do know what happened. were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> there was a briefing with tapes that we all saw, those of us who went to it that made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel people to describe exactly what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold. we have a complete detailed description. >> we know what happened in been gauzy -- in benghazi because we have the reports. i am making sure that you work with me so we can find out what the administration knew. >> i do not want the american people left with this impression. would you say why we were misled. that implies an intent to mislead you. i think there was a description of a variants and talking points. i
.i.a. and the fbi have to be able to communicate more effectively. these agencies communicate more effectively. how do we get better? you know what? it has been a lot better. and nobody said we need to know why george bush let this happen. we need to know why republicans stood in the way. it is a totally different reaction. >> bill: what we had -- again which president opposed to the 9-11 commission, did a tremendous job led by tom kane of new jersey. and lee hamilton from maine. they came up with the recommendations. they looked at it from a bipartisan way. what lessons can we learn. it was not let's bring in the secretary of state who would have been condy rice. let's bring in the secretary of state and hold her responsible for the whole damn terrorist attack. >> i would have fired you! condy rice! >> bill: that's the difference. sherry is down in brownwood texas. >> caller: good morning. >> bill: good morning. what do you think? >> caller: my only thing that i really took out of this because i expected hillary to do what she did what i'm saddened about as a progressive is john mccain has turned
are the people who are being prosecuted? where are the suspects in custody? is that for her to answer or the f.b.i. and why don't we have answers about that? >> we don't have answers 'cause they haven't done anything. one thing they called an f.b.i. investigation, which is a criminal investigation, this was obviously an act of terror. but by saying it doesn't matter, then that sets aside or diminishes the importance of all the measures they failed to take. there were warnings. there was attacks on a british ambassador. there was a request to keep an additional security force there because of the rising threat. it was obvious that there was -- including rather urgent messages september by our am -- sent by our ambassador back to washington which she said she never saw. i was in tripoli with christopher stevens on july 7. he was deeply concerned about security there. cnn reporter found a message from him weeks later in the burned out consulate. so look, this thing has been a cover-up. i'm sorry to tell you that probably the adoring media will now say, well, that chapter is over. well, it's not over
the fbi to have time to do their job, and what difference does it make whether they knew exactly what it was right away. >> stephanie: right. >> and they are still trying to figure out out like we all are. >> stephanie: but in the heat of a tragedy, and she has just been told her friend and ambassador had been killed, she is going to go wait a minute, was there a video? >> it shows their fixation on unimportant details. we're getting more and more information, and you know -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> this is what happens when you see republicans spoiling for a fight when there is nothing to fight over. >> what is to fight over is who cut funding for embassy security. >> exactly. where the hell do they get off complaining about this at all? >> stephanie: thank you. and john mccain was just shaking his fist and i'm glad to see -- oh i'm just fighting with myself! >> well he can be slightly forgiven he had to endure another inauguration from the man who beat him. i was not sitting too far from the president during the inauguration and he was sitting next to orrin hatch,
information has the fbi found on who did this, who these terrorists were specifically? when are we, when can we expect an update how this investigation is going? or is it dead in the water? is nothing actually happening? >> well, we're going to continue to work and i'm going to ask questions of secretary designee kerries because he will continue on with the work there. people still want justice. the president promised justice. when i asked the secretary yesterday was there justice, she said the president has promised and you can trust him to deliver. well, i'm not of the same mind set. i don't trust we'll find the full delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest gol
